More about the Yoga &
The Yoga Therapy involves learning selected and highly adapted yoga practices that are very simple to access. No previous experience of yoga is needed and nor do clients require a particular level of fitness or flexibility to practice them safely. The poses are modified to suit and support the individual.
For severe stress, anxiety & PTSD :- The yoga postures that are taught enable tense muscles that are implicated in either fight and flight or shut down (aka the freeze state) to relax, thus shutting off fight/flight/freeze mechanisms at least temporarily. The postures are usually performed sitting or lying on the ground if possible (although modifications for disabilities can be offered) alongside simple breathing techniques if necessary. Clients learn that facial expressions and body positions can be used to calm emotions and reactions to stressful stimuli, as well as help stave off panic attacks, assist with sleep irregularities and counteract waves of anxiety and hypervigilence.
Marma Therapy is an Ayurvedic form of massage that is a little like Chinese Acupuncture without the needles. Marma points are acupressure points along the body that correlate to either lymph node sites or junctions between nerve pathways or veins & arteries. Specific marma points in the legs, head, face and arms are gently palpated to ease muscle tension, calm the nervous system and relax the body.
Often during a marma treatment, fight and flight mechanisms are switched off sufficiently to allow any hormonal disregulation to ease, promoting a calmer, more relaxed state in mind and body. In many cases, the marma treatment also enables clients to process or express emotions and memories pertaining to their particular situations, calmly and effectively.
In the treatment phase of marma, the client is fully clothed, may be covered with blankets and is given the option of using either the massage couch, or if comfortable, can lie on the floor on yoga mats (at times). Marma therapy may be offered initially on its own in the beginning stages of treatment and laterly incorporated alongside the yoga therapy.
